Queer lav – Filmski festival u Veneciji

Čile, pre nego što je Allende pobedio na izborima, Jaime, dvadesetogodišnji narcis, bez ikakvog razloga nožem ubija čoveka po imenu Ciganin, njegovog do tada cenjenog prijatelja. Osuđen na zatvor, on upoznaje Pastuva, starijeg i poštovanog čoveka u kome će Jaime naći zaštitu, otkrivajući duboku želju za nežnošću i priznavanjem. Iza rešetaka Jaime će postati Princ i naučiće od Pastuva ljubav i poverenje. Oni će imati blisku vezu „crne ljubavi“, kako se to u zatvoru zove, dok se on suočava sa nasilnom borbom za moć unutar zatvora.

Queer Lion – Venice Film Festival

Chile, just before the elections bringing Allende to power; Jaime, a narcissist 20 year old, kills with a knife with no apparent reason a guy known as The Gypsy, his till then admirable friend. Sentenced to prison, he will meet The Stallion, an older and respected man in whom Jaime will find protection, revealing a deep need for tenderness and recognition. Behind bars, Jaime will become The Prince and will learn about love and loyalty with The Stallion. They will have a close relationship of “black love”, as it is called in jail, while he faces the violent power struggle inside prison.
